The holiday season has a special type of beauty to it marked by generosity, gathering, and joy. There is no better time than the holidays to bring our purpose at Pushpay to life by showcasing the tangible impact of the ministries we are privileged to partner with.
At Pushpay, we’re driven by our purpose to bring people together by strengthening community, connection, and belonging. Overall, we want to make the administrative aspects of ministry easy for you so you can focus on building the Kingdom of God in your church and the world.
Through our #TogetherWe campaign, we’ve been able to visit communities and see firsthand the tremendous impact churches have had. They’ve exploded in growth, given generously, loved their neighbors, and made a sizable difference in their neighborhoods.
These ministries are not stagnant; they actively reach out and impact the lives of those around them. They embody the very essence of Jesus’ instructions to His church: to compassionately care for the marginalized and generously give to others.
Together We Minister to the Least of These
First Baptist Church Garland extends its ministry to those in need through a special holiday outreach initiative known as The Christmas House. The members of their church unite each year to generously donate gifts to families in need, who otherwise wouldn’t have had the means to afford them. They ensure that every child will have a present to open on Christmas morning.
The church used Pushpay to generate forms for parents to fill out with information about their children like their age, gender, and so on. This ensured that every child was accounted for and made it so volunteers could seamlessly organize the gifts and get them to the families in need.
Jim Witt, Minister of Missions Mobilization at FBC Garland, said, “There are just so many ways in which we’ve impacted our community and we’re grateful for the opportunity.”
Together We Give Generously
Similarly, The Potter’s House of Fort Worth, Texas has also been able to utilize Pushpay to impact children during the holidays.
Their goal is to be the hearts, hands, and feet of Jesus Christ to their community. They have done this tangibly through their partnership with Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department with whom they provide gifts to children of the incarcerated.
This group of often-forgotten children were remembered and over 3,500 gifts were given to 513 children this past holiday season.
Not only does this program supply children in need with gifts, but it also strengthens the connection between the families impacted, the Sheriff’s Department, and The Potter’s House as well. Through this program, the church is giving both gifts and hope to the families in their community.
Thanks to the generosity of church members and the technology to simplify their work, these two churches have brought tremendous joy to hundreds of families. Through these ministries, we see that generosity does more than just build a church or ministry, it brings about a genuine impact on those around us who go without during the Christmas season.
The impactful work of these ministries, reaching and transforming communities, wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of church members. Their contributions make a profound difference in enabling these ministries to serve effectively. As such, we want to make it seamless and simple for your church to come to the aid of your community this holiday season.
As our CEO Molly Matthews said,
If you want to bring joy to children this holiday season in the ways The Potter’s House and First Baptist Church Garland have, we’d be honored to help. There should never be a barrier to the amount of impact you have on your community in need. We truly believe that together we can make a difference this holiday season!
